They really are, they are the 1672 range from North Star, originally done by Mark Copplestone as Age of the Sun King.

They are clean, neat sculpts that are a joy to paint and look wonderful when finished. I have 4 more almost done.

And my first batch of 21015 Painting....

Firstly the last of my Roman Dwarfs

Image

Then 3 GW LOTR Dwarfs (it is going to be a year full of Dwarves)

Image

Then 4 near future Mercs for the Fighting on Venus

Image

Then an unhappy Witch in stocks

Image

Then 3 pikeman and a sergeant to go with the Musketeers

There are also 2 more witches and a cauldron, but I seem to have missed their picture out, something I shall correct later.

Last but not least 13 bases of GW Plastic trees painted up and done as the Jungles of Venus (some of these sprues came from people here a while back!

The Musketeers are still the best :)

Are you putting gloss varnish on your models?

It is a satin varnish, they are much less shiny in real life than the camera is making them.

Then a squad of Space Marines, I finally got finished (well almost, can't find my transfers for a couple of the shoulder pads).

Image

Bonus points for anyone who can name the Chapter....

Looking good! One point, the elves are from the 4th ed fantasy boxset. I had to paint loads of them as a redshirt, for the intro games table. *shudder*

Ahhhh I always thought it was 3rd, but hey, I stand corrected. I just have hundreds of them as Woolworths (remember them) carried the boxed set and mispriced it so I got 3 of them for the same as one box retail should have cost!

Actually I find them a nice easy paint, undercoat with Hammerite matt Aluminium spray, paint details and then inkwash.
